Japanese Airman's Rescue Signal Flag

Designed to be folded and carried by Japanese airman in WWII, to aid rescue if forced to ditch over water.

The rising sun section is oversized compared to a regular Japanese flag, in order to attract maximum attention. Minor service wear and staining, but a most unusual and rare item. 102 cm x 79 cm (40" x 31")
